As part of my effort to share ADHD Resources in Australia, I’m writing a set of articles on ADHD Coaches.
In this article, we’ll look at Connect ADHD, an ADHD coaching service which is run by Jonathan Hassall, BN and Monica Hassall, BN.
ADHD Coaches don’t provide medical advice, and you should always consult a psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. However, coaches like Jonathan and Monica play an important role in improving the lives of those with ADHD, their family members, partners, friends and coworkers.
What happens after you’ve received diagnosis, treatment and even medication? What else can you do manage ADHD in a practical way throughout your daily life and work? That’s where ADHD coaches play a vital role.
Prior to founding Connect ADHD with Monica, Jonathan held roles as the Clinical Research Scientist and lead medical advisor for ADHD in the pharmaceutical industry. During his time in the pharmaceutical industry, Jonathan educated health professionals in Australia and New Zealand about ADHD treatment options including medication, coaching, cognitive behavioural therapy, and patient education.
As a practice, Connect ADHD is committed to:
Furthering clinical insight and understanding of ADHD and Executive Function issues, through greater collaboration with clients, their families, and other health professionals.
Jonathan and Monica coach their clients face-to-face or online via a webinar platform to support them reaching their goals and improving their performance in a variety of life areas. As specialised ADHD and Executive Function coaches, Jonathan and Monica put particular emphasis on topics including time management, sleep, motivation, relationships and productivity at work, to name a few. Working with their clients, they create strategies for understanding ADHD, and “how” to manage it within everyday life.
Along with individual coaching, Connect ADHD offers a number of group programs for specific clients groups including parents, couples and students. They also have a helpful ‘Free Education’ section on their website which provides an introduction to the basic concepts on ADHD.
